So many times our son, Phillip will say, "mom you better use this time to rest up for what's next" That means to me to Rest in Him during this time and rest in Spirit/Soul and Body. I realize it is a time to refuel and “chill out” for the next task, but I still feel like I need to be “doing” something. Are you relating?...
I think about the times he had to hide in “crags” in the mountains from his enemies. He had no one to talk to or encourage him but that was the times he ran to the Lord. I’ve asked myself this question many a time, “How did David Encourage Himself in the Lord?”
In all of those kinds of situations we need to be encouraged in the Lord. In the midst of great distress it says of David in verse six, “…But David strengthened himself in the LORD his God.”
"Walking in the Spirit" is living in the stream of the Living Water flowing getting to know God as David knew Him by letting Him lead us in our daily lives by spending time with Him in His Word and in conversation. He wants you to get to know Him. It is one thing to have our sins forgiven and go to Heaven Eternally to be with Him, but it's another thing to put our foot to the pavement and live through the stressors of life successfully, but we can. Experience Him as you get to know Him as your Friend and Counselor....now!
Learn from David's life he acknowledged God as Lord and walked in His guidance TRUSTING Him in times of darkness. David lived in His presence letting Him guide each step. Let Father show you the way guiding you faithfully until your last breath.
I want to go sit still right now and hear what He has to say to me. I know what I want to say to Him... I am in for the long haul but it will be Him not me that can do it…….
